  4. Personalisation is defined as a process that : “… Enables the individual alone, or in groups, to find the right solution for them and to participate in the delivery of a service. From being a recipient of services, citizens can become actively involved in selecting and shaping the services they receive.” The Scottish Government 2009 (Changing Lives Report)

  5. Self Directed Support (SDS) • SDS enables the people we work for to choose how their support is provided to them by enabling each individual to have as much control as they want over the individual allocated budget and their support arrangements. • SDS is therefore the support each individual purchases or arranges to meet agreed health and social care needs. • SDS can be used in many ways. Individuals can have their support within their home, to go to college or to pursue community leisure activities rather than going to a day centre. • Individuals who receive services can choose whether to purchase support from any Care Provider. They can also choose to employ a personal assistant (PA), using a range of options.

  6. Promoting 4 Choices • Option 1 – Direct Payments. (a cash payment) • Option 2 – Individual Service Fund (the council holds the budget but the person is involved in how the money is spent) • Option 3 – The local authority arranges a service for the supported person • Option 4 – A mixture of the above
